So, Fr. Mark was over the other night and entertained the kids by telling them the story of Horatius at the bridge (like in the poem). The older Zoomlians were really into it. Still, Fr. Mark was startled when the Zoomlians started listing other Roman options:
Klenda wanted to know why they didn't have a standing army for the defense of the city.
Zorg thought they should have just burned the bridge.
Mxyl decided they needed a force field.
